Harrison Ford Video of Taxiway Landing

2/21/2017 5:44 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Harrison Ford's taxiway landing last Monday was caught on video, and it promises to be the centerpiece of the FAA investigation.

The video was captured by cameras trained on the runways at John Wayne Airport in Orange County. It shows Ford's approach which came dangerously close to an American Airlines 737, which was on the taxiway when the actor's plane passed overhead.

A man in the terminal who took a picture of the landing told us Ford had misjudged the runway and banked sharply before landing on the taxiway, but  that is not reflected in this video.

Mike Epps Alleged Victim Has Gnarly Black Eye

2/22/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-mike-epps-victim-eye-injury-photos-launch-3The guy accusing Mike Epps of attacking him in a New Orleans casino says these pics prove the comedian went HAM on his face.

TMZ obtained the shots of Algernon Pitre ... he claims he suffered the black eye, laceration and general swelling at the hands of Epps around 4 AM Saturday in Harrah's.

Pitre tells us he also has neck pain, and got a CT scan and X-rays. He's already lawyered up, but says he'll wait to see how the criminal case plays out before considering a lawsuit. 

As we reported, Epps was arrested for battery and no-showed for his arraignment. His reps had no comment, but on Tuesday he signed autographs and repeated, "I love my fans" like it's his mantra. Too little too late? 

Natty Light Sued You Can't Use My Face to Hawk Booze ... Says Beer Swilling Chick

2/22/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-main-kayla-kraft-tmz-facebook-02She doesn't always drink Natty Light, but when she does ... a North Carolina chick doesn't want her face slapped on beer ads, damn it!

Kayla Kraft is suing Anheuser-Busch -- makers of the not-so-primo pilsner -- over a photo she posted of herself sipping on a 12-ouncer. She says the pic began appearing in Natural Light's "Every Natty Has A Story" campaign -- first, on coasters distributed to Carolina bars, and then on posters in bars, restaurants and stores.

Kayla says she put the pic on FB for anyone to see, but never gave consent to become Natty Light's poster child. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, she says she owns the copyright on the pic -- and has even registered it with the U.S. Copyright Office.

Might seem like an odd move for a candid drinking pic, but she's going after the beer giant for a slice of its profits from the campaign.

2/21/2017 4:43 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Josh McDermitt can neither confirm nor deny whether he'll be in season 2 of "Stranger Things" ... but does have a funny way of explaining his run-in with the kid stars.

We got the 'Walking Dead' actor Tuesday at LAX, where our camera guy grilled McDermitt about a pic he posted Monday with 3 of the boys from the Netflix show ... with hashtags like #CrossoverEpisode fueling rumors he'll star in the upcoming season.

Like Josh says ... he can't talk about that. But he's happy to deadpan his way through their meetup in Portland.

EXCLUSIVE

We asked 'Clef about Trump's Tuesday visit to the National Museum of African American History -- with Dr. Ben Carson -- and he told us what he HOPES the prez learned ... including tolerance for opposing viewpoints.

Breaking News

0221-james-otis-defaced-star-TMZ-01The Otis elevator heir who took a pickax to Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame cut a deal in his felony vandalism case and he won't spend a day behind bars.

James Otis pled no contest to the vandalism charge and was placed on 3 years probation.

He was also ordered to pay the Hollywood Historic Trust and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce a total of $4,400 ... presumably the cost of repairing the damage and replacing portions of the star.

Otis must also do 20 days of Caltrans work ... possibly picking up trash by the freeway.

He did the deed October 26, 2016, to protest then-candidate Donald Trump.

Kesha Her Team Hammered Her On Weight Dr. Luke Provided Emotional Support

2/21/2017 1:54 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-dr-luke-kesha-TMZ-youtube-01Kesha's own team was obsessed with the singer's weight, while Dr. Luke -- the man she's suing for allegedly saying she looked like a "f***ing refrigerator" -- was emotionally supportive ... this according to new legal docs filed by Luke.

Dr. Luke's lawyers submitted emails from Kesha's managers and personal assistant, including one from one of her managers to another, saying, "She really sounds like someone who is doing drugs soo erratic. a couple of hours ago all is going well now she wants to dump the whole lot. this doesn't feel right even with Kesha standards." The reply ... "She is nuts!!!"

There were also references to keeping junk food away from Kesha, with a manager writing, "I definitely think there can't be junk food there for sure."  

Luke emailed Kesha back in 2010, "I know you said you looked like a lesbo but I disagree -- you looked radiant and beautiful. You're doing exactly what you're meant to be doing right now. You're actualizing your dreams. I'm proud of you and love you very much. xo L"

Kesha claims in her suit Luke sexually assaulted her and psychologically abused her.

Chris Brown Denies 'Bulls***' with Soulja Boy ... Karrueche Too?

2/21/2017 12:58 PM PST
Breaking News

Chris Brown is strongly denying something, but it's unclear if he's talking about his ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran claiming he's making death threats, or about Soulja Boy -- either way, Chris looks rough around the edges.

Brown told his fans, "Make sure y'all don't be listening to all this bulls***." He never says Karrueche's name, but he could be referring to the story TMZ broke -- Karrueche getting a restraining order against him.

He also explains why he pulled out of the Soulja Boy boxing match -- blaming it on "homies" getting in the way -- and seems to challenge Soulja's crew to come get him.

What's clear is Chris has massive dark circles around his eyes, and seems to be in desperate need of some sleep.

Milo Yiannopoulos Resigns from Breitbart Over Pedophilia Comments

2/21/2017 12:36 PM PST
Breaking News

0221-milo-yiannopoulos-getty-01Milo Yiannopoulos -- controversial Senior Editor at Breitbart News -- is leaving the company over recently unearthed comments he made about pedophilia.

Milo announced his resignation Tuesday, saying ... "I would be wrong to allow my poor choice of words to detract from my colleagues' important reporting, so today I am resigning from Breitbart ... This decision is mine alone."

He also thanked Breitbart for standing by him, and contributing to his success. 

His resignation comes on the heels of Larry Wilmore going in on him on Bill Maher's show last week -- you'll recall the "Go f*** yourself" line. Right after that ... the interviews surfaced where he made remarks many interpreted as defending pedophilia.

In one convo with Joe Rogan, Milo seemed to condone adults having sex with teenagers. He's since apologized and denied condoning child abuse in any way.

Chris Brown Karrueche Gets Restraining Order He Threatened to Kill Me

2/21/2017 10:08 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0221-chris-brown-karrueche-tran-TMZ-01Chris Brown has been ordered to stay clear of ex-GF Karrueche Tran, after she filed legal docs saying he vowed to kill her and he's beaten her up before ... TMZ has learned.

Karrueche claims in a sworn statement to the judge, earlier this month Chris "told a few people that he was going to kill me." She then says Chris told the friends if he can't have her then no one else can, threatening he was going to "take me out" and "threatened to shoot me."

Karrueche also says several years ago Chris "punched me in my stomach twice," and "pushed me down the stairs." This would have been during the time Chris was on probation for the Rihanna beating.

The legal docs also claim Chris has threatened to harm her friends and even recently threw a drink at one of them.

She worries he's now putting action behind his words, and that's why she got the restraining order.

A few weeks ago Chris posted this video, which tracks with Karrueche's claim Chris was telling friends if he couldn't have her no one could.

The domestic violence restraining order requires Chris to stay 100 yards away from Karrueche, her mom and her brother.  

We reached out multiple times to Chris' rep ... so far no word back.
